Henrik Ibsen by Scipio Slataper

Description

This dissertation about the Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen is by the writer and soldier Scipio Slataper, whose obituary is also shown. Slataper was from Trieste, now in Italy, but at the beginning of the war, ruled by Austria. He loved his hometown and the surrounding hills of Carso. He felt a great affinity with Italy although he recognises the Slavic roots of Trieste in Il Mio Carso (My Carso), his masterpiece.

At the beginning of the war he went to the still-neutral Italy. In January 1915 he helped in the rescue works after the earthquake in Abruzzi. He decided to remain in Italy after the declaration of war, on 24 May 1915, and joined the army. He died that same year on 3 December 1915 at the frontline.
